Quote from the Getup! Action for Australia Campaign site:
'When the Federal Government made a 2007 election promise that would force internet providers to block access to websites which were 'Refused Classification', GetUp immediately began a grassroots movement against the threat to Australia's online freedom. We commissioned a petition that brought support from over 140,000 Australians; flooded Q and A with questions that challenged the legitimacy of Stephen Conroy's policy; and raised over $125,000 to put our Censordyne ad on the air. The Opposition and the Greens have both decided not to support the policy - meaning that the government is unable to pass the legislation. Special thanks to EFA for their partnership on this campaign.'
